Um…one time, I was lying in my bed looking at, you know, nothing, and there was this spider like…hanging above my head…and I was all ‘Ooh, spider!’ so I blew on it…and then the spider like…fell…on my face…and I’m all, ‘Ah! Spider!’ and the spider was all, ‘Ah, Yamazaki!’ and I was all, ‘Ah! Spider!’ then like…spider.

Many extraordinary people throughout history have led predominantly ordinary day-to-day lives. Many ordinary aspects of life are quite desirable, raising a healthy family, spending time with friends, and so on. If we desire to be extraordinary, we should do so in pockets where we have talent or capability, and not necessarily seek to be extraordinary in all that we do.

Surround yourself with people who make you happy. People who make you laugh, who help you when you’re in need. People who genuinely care. They are the ones worth keeping in your life. Everyone else is just passing through.
—  Karl Marx
